Pope Applauds BCE

BCE = Baptism/Confirmation/Eucharist. In that order.

I saw this on PrayTell and at the Catholic News Agency: praise for the Fargo, North Dakota bishop.

Bishop Samuel Aquila:

I was very surprised in what the Pope said to me, in terms of how happy he was that the sacraments of initiation have been restored to their proper order of baptism, confirmation then first Eucharist.

Prediction: the Catholic Right will not embrace this quite as deeply as the six-candlestick-and-cross fad.

    Au contraire, you would then be shocked at the rapture expressed over at Rorate Caeli this morning….

    Correction: I misremembered. It was WDTPRS, last night….

    I wonder what happens when they find out it was proposed by liberal liturgists and theologians thirty-plus years ago.
